Rumor: Ross met with panthers twice

James, remember that time you said Blaine Gabbert was better than Cam? That's why no one takes you seriously.

Not sure I'll ever live that one down. Though it is one of those things that has kind of spun out and away from the truth by several degrees.

If you actually look at what I wrote pre-draft, I said that Newton had far and away the higher ceiling, and the far greater chance to be 'great', but I was very unsure about whether he could correct his mechanics at the next level, and become a true pocket passer.

Thankfully for all of us the organization took a risk that I wouldn't have -- at least playing armchair GM.

FWIW, I still think Gabbert has a future -- just needs to get away from that dumpster fire in Jacksonville. He always needed 1-2 years to sit before starting, and never should have been put in year-one. At least that's the way I see it.

The best thing to know before you join here:

There's some people who just won't compromise... as with anywhere, but you'll see it's especially prevalent here lmao (not a shot at you either JT)

i do visit an inferior site at times, but Gabbert problem cant be coached. he is too scary to play QB in this league.

Has there been any news on Gettleman? I still say he ends up being our guy.

Interviewing today. No other details yet that I've seen.

I doubt we hear anything of substance prior to everyone being interviewed and most likely sometime next week at the earliest that a deal is struck and announced.

I'm starting to feel bad for Mr. Ross. It really does look like most teams used him for the Rooney rule.

Truthfully I have no clue who the front runner is. My guess is Gettleman solely because every potential candidate other than Ross come from a pro-personnel background, not college scouting -- but what do I know?

Good guess.

Given that we had Accorsi running the search, I feel confident he was a serious candidate with us.

I'd absolutely love for us to hire him as a Director of Player Personnel or something like that.

I'm declaring myself the new NJPanthers after that.

Shouldnt that title be reserved for James Dator?
